Visiting museum in small tourist group in time, when usually museum is closed and a special guided tour by the employee of this museum made this visit very special. The biggest exhibition presents the warship “Kronan” that sank at the south coast of Öland 1676....More

Most of the exhibition is about an old war ship (Regalskeppet Kronan) which sank 1th of June 1676. There are plenty of artefacts around, and you will get to know the whole story quite well without being exhausted. All ages will gain from a visit...More
